[racket-users] Amazon Mechanical Turk library/package in racket

2019-09-11 Thread Marc Kaufmann
Hi all, I was wondering if there is a Racket library that makes it easy to interface with Amazon's Mechanical Turk interface (https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSMechTurk/latest/AWSMturkAPI/Welcome.html) and if anyone has some code lying around on how to do so? I know that there is the aws package

I don't recall seeing that implemented in Racket/Scheme, but, in class, years ago, Leslie Kaelbling mentioned using Scheme captured continuations for AI search backtracking, as I mentioned (and Matthias has good comments in that thread):

[racket-users] continuations for search

2019-09-11 Thread Hendrik Boom
Depth-first searches are easy to code by simple recursion. Breadth-first searches are good for finding short solutions and not getting caught in infinite recursions. Are there any ready-made tools in Racket for turning depth-first search code into breadth-first by strategic use of

Amusingly enough, I've spent a little time playing with a Lisp someone ported to the 128K Color Computer 3. https://github.com/jamieleecho/minilisp It is very hard to do much of anything once the interpreter and library is loaded in. To be honest I'm still impressed it runs at all. :D It's a

[racket-users] REPL printing importance?

I remember being interested in Acornsof Lisp for the BBC Micro, but sadly it was too expensive to be seriously considered(£80 iirc). I did manage to get a hold of 'A little smalltalk' and the associated book later, but ended up going down the Racket rabbit hole instead... S. On Wed, Sep 11, 2019

Having the distinction between displayed and printed representation is very important. Responsiveness is very important, so I'd like to see large values handled better. Simply guarding against the accidental printing of a looong list would be nice. Printing truncated, with a clickable "...",
